Stop Waiting for the Perfect Moment

stop waiting


Waiting for the perfect moment to do something we want to do. We’ve all been guilty of that. We need to stop waiting.

It’s an easy trap to fall into – finding all sorts of reasons not to get to something when there’s the least little bit of difficulty in doing it. Okay, not now, but soon. I’ll have more time after this. It’s just not the right time now. Believing that there must be a perfect time to do something, and if it doesn’t feel like it, then it’s just not the right time.

Spoiler alert: there is no perfect moment.

Stop waiting for it.

Oh sure, there are better times than others. And of course, there are times when it really is a bad time, or it does make sense to wait.

But be careful not to get stuck in the habit of waiting and waiting, and just never getting to do the thing you want to do, because it doesn’t feel like the perfect time. (And you know… often when you do the thing, it ends up feeling like it was a perfect time because that’s when you did it!)

What if you have been waiting on that thing, that dream….okay, even if you should have done it already, don’t give up. If you still have that dream, you can still make it happen.

Just do the things you really want to do, when you have the chance, make them happen, or before you know it, it will be too late someday.

And the “perfect” moment will have passed you by.
